Run time 35:15
Recorded in October 2008 in the week before Fisher’s first live performance at Womb in Manchester. The first two tracks, recorded as one continuous piece, are experiments using Loopstation with an electric guitar and an 80s Casio Keyboard to create a lo-fi, slow building series of tones that fade in and out and layer up around each other. The feel then changes slightly with a a series of improvised, live, loop compositions of crackles, knocks, scrapes, clunks, rustles, buzzes etc. from a variety of sources including plastic bags, contact mics scraping along clothing and other surfaces, a sponge, scissors, a camera and drumsticks through contact mics, or at varying distances to a condenser mic (sometimes touching it). Some sounds are accidental such as the sound of tools falling onto the floor in track 2 that then becomes part of the loop. The last noise on the CD is the sound of a cassette-tape being unravelled.
